Where are all the snowplows? Calgary has a real-time map on plow positions and road updates

Dec 20 2017, 10:28 pm

If you’re confused as to why your own suburban cul-de-sac hasn’t had a visit from the city snowplow quite yet, we’ve got something special to show you.

Calgary actually has a map showing exactly where each of their hard-working snowplows are currently clearing streets, and which areas they’ve recently visited.

As you can see, the colour co-ordinated lines give hour by hour updates as to how long it’s been since they’ve seen a clear, along with showing what streets are considered priority one or priority two.

Unfortunately, not too many cul-de-sacs fall under the priority designation, so it may be up to you to shovel out your street.

Calgary is rallying after the heavy snowfall that hit the city last night and this morning, and though the Environment Canada snowfall warning has ended, we’re sure this is just the start of what winter has in store for us.

If you don’t already have them, investĀ in a good hardy shovel, warm pair of boots, and some solid winter tires, because winter has only just begun.
